5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Serving no frills, spit roast chicken, ( coated in a few spices...lovely!) without cutlery or placemats etc..along with a basic range of beers... for 40 + years :)
7euros for 330ml of maes pils, half a chicken & 4 slices of fresh bread...served within 3 minutes of entering... fast food, Belgium style !

“Chicken Nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012 via mobile

Love this place, have been several times. The Chicken/Maes combination is fantastic. Beer and salty chicken with bread, what more could you want. The beer is fantastic, Belgium beer usually is, a Pint of Maes or Glass of Mort Subite to wash down the Chicken supper. There isnt a great deal to do in Ostend, but when I pop over to Calais to get some supplies, usually make a detour north and stay for a night in Ostend, and this place is where I end up for supper. Highly recommended.
